Maine Tree Nut-Free Travel Itinerary

Take in the seaside towns, historical lighthouses, and beautiful beaches of Maine with Daphne’s tree nut-free itinerary. In between hiking in Camden, and kayaking on Boothbay Harbor, she enjoyed safe fish and chips served by a chef with a peanut allergy, nut-free donuts, and chocolates at Spokin Verified Dean’s Sweets. Follow Daphne on Spokin @daphlevy to see all of her reviews and on Instagram @daphsfoodfinds.

Dinner: Boathouse Bistro Tapas Bar & Restaurant

“This place is great! The waitstaff was knowledgeable about kitchen protocols and preventing cross-contamination. I got shrimp pasta (it was originally scallop but I subbed shrimp).”


Lunch: Mine Oyster

“Our waitress was very knowledgeable about which dishes would and wouldn’t come into contact with nuts. I got the lobster quesadilla.”

Dinner: HarborSide 1901 Bar and Grill

“There were a few nuts in some of the salads, which I avoid anyway, but I ended up getting sushi because there were no nuts on the sushi bar! Maybe the best sushi I’ve ever tasted! And the waiter assured me that he took note of my allergy and the chefs knew.”

Sightseeing: Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens


Lunch: McSeagull’s

“Super accommodating for allergies and great food!”

Dinner: Ports of Italy

“It was such good Italian food and super allergy-accommodating. I got a gnocchi dish!”

Sightseeing: Sherman’s Maine Coast Book Shop

Sightseeing: Guided Boat Tour on Boothbay Harbor


Breakfast: Waves Restaurant

“Before we ordered food, we asked to speak with the chef, which was really helpful! They have walnuts in a few things like the pancakes, granola, etc. They also have basil pesto that is not made in-house, but that does not have pine nuts. The chef was very helpful in answering questions and assured me that if I got eggs, it would not be an issue. I did a build your own omelette with a side of home fries and left out the toast, just because I always worry about bread like that, but other than that everything was great!”

Dinner: McSeagull’s

“One of my favorite places for fish & chips!”

Sightseeing: Dolphin Mini Golf


Breakfast: The Holy Donut

“Yummy donuts and all nut-free (except the coconut)! Me and my family all got the dark chocolate sea salt, and we thought they were delicious!”

Lunch: Old Port Sea Grill & Raw Bar

“The chef has a peanut allergy and the only nuts on the menu are pistachios in a couple of dishes. Other than that, everything else is completely safe. I got fish and chips (for the third time here in Maine) and they were delicious.”

Sightseeing: Downtown Portland
